Podcast 10 – Support for Small Business During COVID-19 – 31st March Update


Today, 31st March 2020

The Coronavirus Job Retention and Self-Employed Income Support schemes have both now been announced, with guidance documents made available from HMRC. Both aim to provide a grant worth 80% of your income up to £2,500 per month, in principal, but details and eligibility are complex for the non-traditional employed – particularly if you are a limited company owner-director. Luckily, an official answer on that specific scenario has been provided by Her Majesty’s Treasury, albeit buried in a webinar.

Here, I outline how each scheme can help, and how and when you can apply for support.

Check out the video right here, or play the audio just below:




If you prefer another player, you can find all our videos on our YouTube channel and our Facebook page and you can find the audio-only podcast everywhere good podcasts live.
